Unhappy Recovering data from password encrypted volume


I have installed fedora 11 in my system. While installing it asked me encrypted password which i passed. But I forgot that. Now the problem is whenever i boot my system before going to root itself it is asking for volume encrypted password, which as i told you i have forgot. Now i am not able to access my hard disk since it is completely locked. Is there any way to decrypt the password or unlock it. Or if that is not possible can data be recovered,which is my primary requirement..

Thanx in Advance
